October is breast cancer awareness month

Breast cancer awareness is one initiative that is close to my heart. After working for a health organization for nearly three years and doing my part to help improve the health of Americans suffering from chronic diseases and illnesses, I’m definitely more acute to the importance of finding cures for these diseases.

Awareness should be year-round, in my opinion, but I’m glad the month of October is dedicated to raising awareness for breast cancer. And in today’s post, I want to share with you why you should do your monthly breast exam, share some facts about breast cancer and provide you with a list of great organization that work tirelessly to find a cure for this horrible disease while education the general public year-round.

Monthly Breast Exam

Why should you do a monthly breast exam? Well, because it could SAVE your life! Early detection is the first step to becoming a survivor. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), “Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved”. Learn more about early detection, courtesy of ACS.

Breast Cancer Resources

American Cancer Society has a great PDF resource document that covers everything on breast cancer, and I mean everything! Get answers to everything from diet and exercise, mammograms, self-breast exams, to lifestyle-related risk factors for breast cancer. [Download the PDF Now!]

Additional Resources

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) has a complete list of great organizations that are working to fight cancer while educating women (and let’s face it) and men about breast cancer and other cancers. Click here to view the complete list.

Btw, kudos to the White House (or should I say Pink House) for participating in raising awareness for breast cancer awareness month.

So dreamlovers, pass on this post–email, tweet, re-post, re-blog it so all your girlfriends remember to do a self-breast exam. It could save their lives! Thanks!

good morning sunshine!

A huge storm rolled through the DC metro area yesterday. So when I  woke up this morning to these amazing clouds against a beautiful blue sky, I just had to take as many pictures as I could on my cell. I love this time of year because summer is not quite over and fall is not quite here either. It feels amazing to know that I’m living my beautiful life with my daughter and I feel incredibly lucky to be alive to SEE the beauty that can come after the storm.

I hope you have a great Wednesday, dreamlovers! Savor every minute of it. Live with no regrets, love deeply.

Weekend #funnies

“You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She’s 97 today and we don’t know where the hell she is.” –Ellen DeGeneres

#Vintage 1950s Ford

I went to a vintage car show where I snapped pictures of this very beautiful 1950s Ford. I looooove vintage cars for the well-made, classic designs+styling, roomy interiors, detailed pieces like the side mirrors, glove box, split windshield, etc.

Check out this car, it was my favorite out of all the cars.
